I think “Jump The Moon” by Kathy Simmers is a great book because I love horses! But that’s not the only reason. First, it’s a heartfelt story about a girl’s love for a horse. The story is based on a true story about the author’s daughter and a special horse in her life.

The next reason I enjoyed the book is because the girl never stopped thinking of the horse and she never gave up on the horse. The girl never believed what other people thought about the horse. Some thought the horse was ugly and mean, but she thought the horse was beautiful and caring.

 I love LEGO! LEGO is an art form to me. With your imagination, you can build whatever you want. It helps me grow and use my brain to think. I also like to draw out my ideas and then build them.

I have a lot of LEGO bricks and sets and my most recent build was the LEGO® Nintendo Entertainment Center. My mom and I went to the LEGO store at the mall and bought it. The set cost over $200. It came in a huge box with lots of different bags inside that were numbered and two big booklets.

 It’s coming soon! Lots of weather change, wind, rain, flooding and dust storms are coming our way. It’s almost time for monsoon in Arizona.

Meteorologist Royal Norman grew up liking weather. “My family and I would go to the garage and watch the weather,” he says.

During the monsoon, our rain pattern changes and monsoons come from the south according to Norman. “There are 14 different monsoons in the world. There is a famous one in India,” says Norman.

 Recently Young Reporters had the chance to meet Arizona artist Joe Pagac. One of Pagac’s notable artworks is the Whale Mural in central Tucson. Pagac has also painted libraries, building walls, and even Instagram worthy backgrounds that you can pose with! At Kirk-Bear Canyon Library, Pagac painted a mural around the building, and changed styles. Part of it is realistic, and part is painted like how a child would.
